Bio-Identical Estrogen Replacement Therapy
Estrogen is an incredibly important hormone, not only for the development of the female reproductive system and secondary sex characteristics but also for the proper continued functioning of the female body. In fact, estrogen levels play a large part in a woman’s health, both from a physical as well as a mental standpoint. While it is natural to experience some estrogen imbalances over the course of the aging process, particularly during menopause, those imbalances can never-the-less have a huge impact on a woman’s quality of life.
Estrogen imbalance manifests itself through several different symptoms, ranging from mild to severe, and include:
- Anxiety and Depression
- Mood Swings
- Trouble Sleeping or Night Sweats
- Hot flashes
- Low Libido and Vaginal Dryness
- Bloating, Joint Pain or Back Pain
- Hair Loss
These issues can often be alleviated through the use of bio-identical estrogen replacement therapy. Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center only uses bioidentical estradiol which is identical to your body’s naturally generated estrogen, providing the best change for the hormones to have the greatest impact. Contact our offices to find out more about how estrogen replacement therapy can help you.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Aging is just a part of life, and has its good aspects along with some more negative changes. Everybody goes through a series of mental and physical changes. For women, specifically, that means menopause. The resulting changes are completely natural, but issues can arise when the body’s hormone balances are out of proportion.
The symptoms of female hormone imbalance can range from the inconvenient to the alarming, and include:
- Weight gain
- Hot flashes
- Night Sweats
- Mood swings
- Low libido
- Memory loss
- Bone density loss
Just because these imbalances occur naturally doesn’t mean that you have to live with them. Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center can help. The safest way of combating that imbalance is through Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT.
BHRT uses hormones that are identical on a molecular level to your body’s naturally generated hormones. After determining your specific hormone levels, our team will determine the right hormones and the proper amounts necessary to get your levels in order. We then administer those hormones in a variety of possible ways, such as pills, pellets, gels, creams or injections, and will determine the best delivery method for you.
Hormone levels are vital to maintaining the quality of your everyday life. Let Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center help you reclaim your life.
Hormone Pellet Therapy
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is an incredibly effective method of combatting hormone imbalances and preventing a lot of the negative symptoms of hormone imbalance. When receiving that therapy, though, not all delivery methods work the same. Some methods are less effective due to the ‘rollercoaster effect,’ meaning that the hormone injections begin strong but then tend to diminish in effectiveness over time.
Hormone pellet therapy solves these issues. The pellet method involves placing small pellets of the correct doses of hormones beneath the skin. The hormones are slowly absorbed into the body over the course of several months. As a result, the patient doesn’t need to worry about self-administering pills, shots or a cream, thereby cutting out any potential user error and insuring that the patient receives the proper amount of hormones that they need.
At Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center, we believe in offering our patients the very best methods to regain their health and wellness. For more information on how hormone pellet therapy can work for you, contact our offices right away.
DHEA Hormone Replacement Therapy
Known as the “mother of all hormones,” dehydroepiandrosterone is the body’s most common and abundant steroid hormone. DHEA gets its matronly nickname from the fact that it is absolutely crucial to the body’s production of estrogen and testosterone. When the body’s DHEA levels go out of balance, patients often experience the symptoms of adrenal fatigue. Those symptoms include:
- Low energy
- Joint pain
- Diminished libido
- Weakened immune system.
Because DHEA is vital to the proper functioning of your body, it is important to keep hormone levels at a proper balance. Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center offers DHEA hormone replacement therapy as a way of boosting your DHEA levels.
Our staff will first test your DHEA levels by administering a urine, blood or saliva test. On determining that your levels are sufficiently low to warrant treatment, we can then begin replacement therapy. We can then prescribe a pill, patch, pellet or gel depending on your specific circumstances.
During treatment, your DHEA count is replenished, giving your body the tools necessary to fight off adrenal fatigue.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Menopause
Menopause is just a fact of life. As a woman grows older, generally in her 40’s and 50’s, the body transitions away from sexual fertility as it prepares to end the menstrual cycle. It’s an important time of your life, but it comes with some challenges. These include hot flashes, sweating, shivering, mood changes, trouble sleeping and even vaginal dryness.
While these changes are natural, they can be unpleasant. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is an effective method for taking the edges off of menopause, helping you make a smoother transition away from your child-bearing years.
By providing hormone replacement therapy, the staff at Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center can help you maintain proper hormone levels that can lessen the impact of your body’s transition. We use bio-identical hormones that are compatible with your body’s natural hormones down to the molecular level, giving the therapy the greatest chance of having the best results.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Headaches/Migraines
Everyone has experienced a headache at some point in their life. They can happen due to a variety of causes, such as sinus pressure, abnormal brain activity, stress or nutrient deficiencies. Most headaches are caused by temporary stimuli and can be treated with rest, hydration, nutrients or pain relievers.
However, persistent headaches might be caused by more lasting issues. In fact, hormone imbalances can cause repeat headaches or even migraines. A lack of vital hormones like estrogen, progesterone or cortisol have been known to lead to some incredibly painful headaches.
In these instances, a patient’s only recourse for ridding themselves of this persistent pain is undergoing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. The dedicated team at Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center can prescribe you the proper mix of hormones to alleviate your pain, in delivery methods ranging from pills, to pellets, creams and injections.
Whatever the cause of your headache, you shouldn’t have to live your life in pain. If you suspect your headaches might be caused by hormone deficiency, contact our offices today to schedule your consultation.
Hormones and Weight Gain
The body is an incredibly complex system. While physicians, physical therapists and nutritionists have long known the relationship of diet and exercise to weight, there is actually a lot more to the body’s complicated system of gaining or shedding weight. A good amount of that system is regulated by the body’s hormone levels.
